AHS Rescues Pugs from Backyard Breeder

In mid-July, we featured several Pug puppies that were at AHS. A Cortlandt, NY saw PUG PUPPIES FOR SALE on the internet and drove to a Middlesex County, NJ residence to see them. The seller refused to allow her to see a pup but brought the young pup out for her to view. Due to the flea infestation and the refusal to gain access to the litter, the New Yorker purchased the pup. When the animal lover returned to Cortlandt, she related the story to her mother who is an Animal Control Officer who contacted the local Police.

AHS ACO/ACI Kevin Rooney, accompanied by Police, spoke with the woman who did not have resources to care for the flea-infested pups. The breeder gave up the 5 pups but refused to give up the two breeding females. An agreement was made between AHS and the owner that the two females would be spayed within the month. All of the pups were cared for medically, inoculated and spayed/neutered by AHS. Since that time, all have been adopted into great homes.

One month later, ACO Rooney returned to the Pug owner who said she sent them to Florida. Shortly thereafter, she reneged on that story and said she put up a sign FREE TO GOOD HOME at the local PetsMart. Within an hour after visiting the local PetsMart, it was discovered that the story was false. Rooney returned to the home as he was concerned about more litters and possible advertising on Craigs List. After a discussion with the Pug owner she surrendered both female Pugs Peanut, a 3 year old who was the mother of the pups and Caitlyn, a 1 year old hermaphrodite, who was spayed to prevent any future medical problems. Both lasses are at the AHS in Tinton Falls. For more information, call 732-922-0100 or e-mail us
